Experienced tour guides direct packs of elevated sightseers on speedy, two-hour excursions through local sand and sun. Seasoned segway technicians guide students through a 20-minute training session and hands-on riding lesson, teaching acceleration, turning, and lullabies for putting tired units to bed. Sporting a dashing plastic head-koozie provided for use during the tour, riders glide over asphalt roadways for an hour and a half of consuming facts and local history. Long Beach tour-goers traipse across the waterfront and its rich history and landmarks, scurrying past Rainbow Harbor, the world’s largest mural, and Aquarium of the Pacific at speeds of up to 12.5 miles per hour—the same speed at which all Pacific-dwelling fish swim. Gliding over bridges and around lagoons, sightseers can snap a commemorative photo in front the Lions Lighthouse for Sight, or the majestic Queen Mary docked alongside its long-time tugboat, the Stable Boy Stan. Alternatively, Santa Monica tours sashay past sandy vistas and scenic views of Venice Beach.
Segway Los Angeles
Gliding serenely along the California coast used to be for the birds. Now, though, humans have mastered the art of hovering just above the ground—and Segway Los Angeles can teach anyone how to do it. Their Segway tours all begin with a training course inside the store, during which guests learn to stand on, steer, and feed apples to their Segway. They then depart on a two-hour jaunt along the shore, traveling through parks and across different types of terrain to see how the Segway handles. Those who fall in love with the sleek machines can return to rent or buy one. In fact, the company even lends out its Segways for the entirety of Burning Man at a special rate.
